Construct interactive sketches by programming standard devices (e.g. Laptops, SmartPhones, Tablets);

Construct interactive sketches by programming small network-enabled microprocessors in combination with various analog and digital sensors/actuators;

Explain the basics of digital and analog sensors/actuators and the openings for interaction design they present;

Explain the basics of the internet of things , smart connected products , cloud computing and the openings for interaction design they present;

Discuss how core theoretical concepts in the design for human interaction with digital technology (e.g. context, mobility, and interconnectedness) can help structure the process of designing for interaction with ‘smart connected products’ 
Fagligt indhold:The course is a hands-on introduction to the theoretical concepts and techniques supporting a construction-oriented explorative approach to interaction design processes. In Particular, the course forwards the construction and use of interactive software and hardware sketches as key vehicles in the early stages of these processes. The course revolves around a series of investigations programming Laptops, Smartphones, Tablets and networked Microcontrollers as part of the hardware and software sketching process. These investigations include an introduction to basic sensor, actuator and networking technologies discussed as materials available to the interaction designer during sketching processes. Finally, the historical and technological underpinnings of the ‘Internet-of-Things’ and ‘ smart connected products’ are introduced, and the openings for interaction design they present are discussed. This includes an introduction to the smart connected products technology stack and the use of state-of-the-art cloud based computing platforms.

The course is an immediate extension of the “Digital Design and Interactive Technologies - foundations" and the ‘introduction to programming courses’.

The course introduces :

- The concepts of context, mobility, pervasive computing, augmented reality, the internet-of-things, and cloud based computing as ground for the design for human interaction with networked digital technologies. In particular, referring to Porter&Heppelman’s work, the course introduces the basic idea of so-called smart connected products and design hereof.

- The use of Javas Script in the construction of interactive sketches. The introduction is centered around the development, execution and debugging of a series of small interactive Java Script web applications for Laptop, Tablets and Smart Phones. Furthermore, the course introduces the use of Java Script for programmatic control of sensors and actuators (accelerometer, compass, GPS, speaker, buzzer) embedded in many of today's handheld devices, and made accessible through common web api’s. The pro and cons of using off-the-shelf smartphones as sketching platform is introduced and discussed.

- The use of node.js to programmatically control network-enabled microcontrollers in the construction of interactive sketches. The introduction is centered around the development, execution and debugging of a series of small interactive node.js applications for microcontrollers. This part of the course includes an introduction to the design of basic electronic circuits and the use of wireless and wired sensors and actuators including appropriate protocols (e.g. Bluetooth, wifi, i2c,serial, etc.). Also, the course introduces the abstraction and use of network enabled so-called smart sensors and actuators including the use of off-the-shelf tagging and beacon technologies (e.g. NFC and Bluetooth enabled components).

- The technology stack of smart connected products and the internet of things , cloud based computing and the use of commercially available platform-as-a-service in the design of smart connected products. This includes hands-on experience with the implementation of Watson Iot services within the IBM cloud platform using nodeJS and Node-RED.
